The World Travel Awards, hailed as the premier awards programme for the travel and tourism industry, are designed to recognise commitment to excellence throughout the global travel, tourism and hospitality sector. The winners are decided by votes from travel industry professionals and consumers.
In addition to the ‘Europe’s Leading Ferry Operator’ accolade, DFDS Seaways also received the title of ‘World’s Leading Ferry Operator’ at last year’s World Travel Awards for a fourth consecutive year.
Max Foster, passenger director at DFDS Seaways comments: “We feel extremely honoured to be awarded ‘Europe’s Leading Ferry Operator’ for the fourth time. This award is testament to the hard work of all our staff on board our ships, as well as our land-based teams, who strive to provide all our guests the best possible maritime experience.
“We put our customers are the heart of everything we do and are delighted to once again receive this accolade from our customers and industry peers. We believe that ferry travel is one of the most enjoyable and easiest ways to travel, with all our ferries equipped with a range of high quality facilities including dedicated children’s areas, restaurants serving delicious fresh food, and shops stocked full of holiday essentials and best buys.”
DFDS Seaways operates a comprehensive passenger route network, incorporating four routes from the UK to Europe, via Dover-Dunkirk, Dover-Calais, Newhaven-Dieppe, and Newcastle-Amsterdam, offering passengers the perfect gateway to Europe. DFDS also operates a number of passenger ferry routes across the Baltic Sea and a service between Copenhagen and Oslo.
